KODIAKS SWEEP PLAYOFFS TO ADVANCE TO FINALS

The Aldergrove Kodiaks swept the second round of the Harold Brittain conference playoffs and now wait to see who they will face in the final Pacific Junior Hockey League championship.

The Kodiaks defeated the Ridge Meadows Flames, 7-2, March 7 at Aldergrove Arena in the fourth game of the best-of-seven series.

Kodiak Kyle Bosko opened the scoring in the first period with help from Kurt Klimek and the team never looked back.

The Flames evened it up on a power play late in the period but the Kodiaks responded on their power play to make it 2-1 in the period.

The goal was scored by Quinncy Leroux, with assists from Cameron Davitt and Davin Padgham.

The Kodiaks scored three more in the second period before the Flames responded, again on a power play, to make it 5-2 for the Kodiaks. Scoring for the Kodiaks were Clayton Schroeder (unassisted), Klimek with help from Matt Oliver, and Leroux from Arjan Cheema and Davitt.

The Kodiaks scored twice more in the third period for the 7-2 final score. Goals were by Oliver from Davitt and Padgham, and Davitt from Derian White and Schroeder.

In this game the Kodiaks only outshot the Flames 41-35, but the Flames were unable to get more than two goals past the Kodiaks defense and keeper Dawson Rodin.

Rodin made 35 saves and won his eighth game of the postseason.

Game stars were Leroux, Klimek and Oliver.

The Kodiaks have a combined record (regular season and playoffs) of 44 wins and eight losses this season.
